STOCKHOLM - Kalmar won Sweden's premiership for the first time on Sunday, securing the title after a 2-2 draw with Halmstad.

Elfsborg beat Gefle 2-1 to move to 63 points, but the draw meant Kalmar won the title by a point. Daniel Sobralense gave Kalmar an early 1-0 lead before Halmstad roared back with two goals by Emir Kujovic and Andreas Johansson. Kalmar's Patrik Ingelsten scored the equaliser with minutes remaining.
